David Gold has again called for fans to sit down in the London Stadium.
Despite him and David Sullivan calling for the fans to do so in a statement on the official site, a petition has now been started for the possible introduction of a safe standing area in the ground.
However, this remains against Premier League rules at this stage and the club have made their position clear.
One fan, promoting the petition on Twitter the Gold follower asked: “
@davidgold David, if you would like to see Safe Standing, could you please retweet this petition?
DG immediately responded by declaring: ” We won’t get a licence for 66k and have the biggest capacity in London if we stand. If you love West Ham sit down dg.”
And he slapped down another fans who reacted: “Why are you so obsessed with having the biggest ground? We’ve already jumped from 35k to 57k.
The co-chairman said: “You may be happy being the fourth club in London. I’m not.”
